Two individuals were found dead in an apartment building that caught fire Saturday morning.
Nova Scotia RCMP say they responded to a fire at 6:55 a.m. on Truro Road in Hilden, Colchester County.
Local fire departments extinguished the fire and an investigation is ongoing.
RCMP say the fire is not believed to be suspicious.
“Our thoughts are with the victims’ loved ones at this difficult time,” they said in a release.
Meanwhile, the Canadian Red Cross says 46 tenants of the 22-unit building were temporarily displaced. The Red Cross helped many of them with emergency funding and temporary hotel lodging. Others arranged to stay with relatives or friends.
Tenants were told by fire investigators to expect to be out of their homes for at least three days.
